About Nancy Greene
Do you have a little speedster who is seeking something more than traditional ski lessons? Are you interested in having your child spend more time on snow, learning a range of skiing skills? Are you tired of yelling 'Slow down!' as your child takes off? Then perhaps the Nancy Greene program is for you!
The Nancy Greene program is designed to develop young ski racers in a non-competitive environment. Athletes race as a team, as opposed to individuals. Only team times are posted and no individual times are displayed. The Nancy Greene races consist of tight Giant Slalom races.
Vorlage offers a 1 day program – Either Saturday or Sunday
"A child must learn to walk before learning to run. Skiing skill development must follow the same sequence, with basic skiing technique being mastered, allowing young skiers to master steeper slopes and more difficult snow conditions, before serious ski racing begins. The challenge of speed, the essence of ski racing, must come in a “run for fun,’ not “run to win’ situation. Formal competition too early in the development of skills may stifle a child’s natural delight in racing before they can develop their full potential." - Nancy Greene Raines
